Born in Saitama, Japan
Lives and works in Saitama, Japan


Shigemi Yasuhara (b. 1984 in Aichi, Japan) addresses with solemnity, the most popular subject of Nihonga: nature. Working on a signature butter-yellow background, Yasuhara depicts the branch of a tree, a vine, or a landscape in pitch perfect brush strokes and delicate colors. The paintings are fresh and captivating with the pure joy that nature paintings can offer.
